The Closed-End MLP Trust seeks to maximize total return with an emphasis on current distributions (portions of which may be comprised of a tax-deferred return of capital).
Past performance is no guarantee of future results. Investment returns and principal value will fluctuate with changes in market conditions. Investors' units, when redeemed, may be worth more or less than their original cost.

Principal Investment Strategy
The Trust contains common stocks of closed-end investment companies (“closed-end funds”) that invest primarily in infrastructure assets, equities and other income-producing securities. Claymore, through proprietary research and strategic alliances, will strive to select closed-end funds that have the potential to achieve the Trust’s investment objective.
The trust invests in a portfolio of Closed-End Funds that invest primarily in infrastructure assets, including oil and gas pipelines, energy-related companies, transportation services, telecommunications equipment, utilities, gas distribution and water. The Closed-End Funds may hold master limited partnerships (“MLPs”), C-corporations, private placements or income trusts and may include both foreign and domestic equity and debt securities, among other things.
When selecting Closed-End Funds for inclusion in this portfolio the sponsor looks at numerous factors. These factors include, but are not limited to:
Investment Objective. The sponsor favors funds that have a clear investment objective in line with the trust’s objective and, based upon a review of publicly available information, appear to be maintaining it.
Premium/Discount. The sponsor favors funds that are trading at a discount relative to their peers and relative to their long-term average.
Consistent Dividend. The sponsor favors funds that have a history of paying a consistent and competitive dividend which, in the opinion of the sponsor, can be maintained.
Performance. The sponsor favors funds that have a history of strong relative performance (based on market price and net asset value) when compared to their peers and an applicable index.
